11 December 2014 – TRIG Conference – Brussels – Belgium

Keynote speaker:
Jan Blommaert (Tilburg University)

Guest speakers:
Fred Hollowood
(Fred Hollowood Consulting)
Tove Hansen Malloy (European Centre for Minority Issues)

With the participation of:

Yves Gambier (Turun yliopisto)
Reine Meylaerts (KU Leuven)
Anthony Pym (Universitat Rovira i Virgili)
Christina Schäffner (Aston University)

Organized by:

Centre for Translation Studies (CETRA), KU Leuven
ITN project Translation Research Training: An integrated and intersectoral model for Europe (TIME)


Research in the humanities is increasingly under pressure to justify its applicability to real-world problems, if only to secure respectable funding. Research on translation, interpreting and localization is no exception. Academic projects are nowadays supposed to correspond in some way to needs beyond the academic world. At the same time, however, the training of researchers largely takes place within the walls of universities.

Here we are concerned with this problematic with respect to translation in a wide sense, including all forms of interpreting, audiovisual translation, localization and the use of translation technologies.

This conference will address issues including the following:

1. What kinds of interests do non-academic institutions (industry, NGOs, governmental and intergovernmental institutions) have in research on translation? What kind of research do they do on translation? What kind of research would they like to be doing?

2. How can such institutions participate in academic research? How can they assist in the training of researchers?

3. What arrangements can be made for funding, internships (“secondments”, practicums, stages) for researchers?

4. What experiences have we had in cooperation between academic researchers and non-academic institutions? Which have been positive? Which have been negative?

5. What channels of communication are open between academic research institutions and non-academic institutions? How can those channels be improved?

6. What kinds of research projects merit or seek industry involvement but are currently unable to find suitable partners? What kinds of industry projects are unable to find partners within academic institutions?

7. How does Europe (particularly in view of the largely failed Lisbon Strategy) compare with other parts of the world in this respect?

8. As academic research is pushed towards non-academic institutions, what are the threats to our independence? Can we still voice radical critiques?

Call For Papers

The rise of English as an international world language has had a dramatic effect on the practice of translation in all domains. It is even stated that whenever English is involved in the process there can be no illusion of parity between source and target languages. As a consequence, translation into and from English cannot be approached in a neutral way, or as a purely technical matter; instead, it must necessarily be considered within a context of power relations, inextricably linked to questions of culture, history and ideology. This has naturally had repercussions on many aspects of Translation Studies, reigniting debates about (amongst other things) the translator’s ethical responsibility and capacity for intervention in situations of cultural inequality, not to mention the effect that constant calquing from English is having upon other languages.

There is, however, another school of thought which views International English as a de-cultured hybrid construction that has ceased to be the property of mother tongue speakers and is therefore no longer the covert vehicle of Anglo-Saxon values. This approach brings a whole new set of issues to the discussion: issues related to source-text hybridity and linguistic simplification; scale-shifting; translating in a cultural vacuum; implications for translation technologies and translator training; and the coexistence of global English with local varieties around the world.

We invite proposals for 20-minute papers offering case studies on various text types and translation directions as well as theoretical, methodological and terminological studies.

Suggested topics include but are not restricted to:

• The impact of the use of English as an international language on the translation of literary, audio-visual and scientific and technical texts

• The implications of International English for translator training

• The implications of International English for translator / translation technologies

• Subtitling and fansubbing

• International English as the intermediary in indirect translation

• The relative merits of the various models (English as an International Language; Global English; World Englishes; English as a Lingua Franca) in the translational context

• Profiling (inter)national literature (in periodicals, volumes, film, radio, TV)

• Presenting (inter)national literature (in prefaces, collections, anthologies, national historiography, literary / scientific historiography)

• Theoretical, methodological and terminological issues in researching the interplay of international English and translation

Abstracts (in English) should be no more than 500 words, and indicate title of paper, four key words, author’s name, institutional affiliation, email address, language of presentation (English or Portuguese), audiovisual requirements and a bio-note (max. 100 words, mentioning main research interests, projects and selected publications).

Submissions (in English) for double-blind vetting should be sent to jornadas.estudos.traducao.2014 .
